Becoming Electra: A Queer Mitzvah

Isla van Tricht

A heart-warming and original one-woman drag show about a queer Jewish girl trying to find her voice.

Electra struggles to reconcile conflicting elements of her identity: can she tell her queer friends she’s Jewish and her Jewish friends that she’s queer?

You’re invited to the party she’s throwing to find out.

With show-stopping songs and comical, compelling storytelling, Becoming Electra: A Queer Mitzvah is a show like no other: exploring what happens when Jewish and queer cultures collide.

Featuring ex-CUADC and CUMTS alumnus, Guy Woolf, as the kween from Cambridge's first ever drag troupe, DENIM.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
